Our practice team offers a full range of services to employer and their insurers, including litigation defense, risk management advice and consulting services. We represent clients statewide, including nationwide corporations operating in New Mexico. With two partners and one associate supported by a dedicated paralegal possessing more than 25 years of experience in workers’ compensation defense, we are well-equipped to staff and defend both high volume and unique workers’ compensation litigation, including complex compensability disputes. Moreover, we are experienced and prepared to counsel employers and workers compensation carriers in the unique choice of law matters that arise given the robust oil field and transportation work that crosses our borders daily.
Our firm prides itself on the rapid and efficient resolution of workers’ compensation disputes, and we represent employers in a variety of industries, including education, government, construction, manufacturing, retail, restaurants, and transportation. In addition to having an experienced workers’ compensation team, the firm has broad resources and experience in complex commercial, employment and government liability claims. We also routinely present educational seminars for employers and insurers on workers’ compensation, occupational disease and employment/risk management issues as we are keenly aware of the unique administrative system driven by appellate interpretation of the statute that New Mexico possesses as well as the strict statutory compliance that employers in New Mexico must achieve in both their policies and practices in order to successfully defend against fraudulent claims or non-accidental injuries.
Importantly, our workers’ compensation team recognizes the fast-paced requirements of the New Mexico Workers’ Compensation Administration’s rules and regulations, and endeavors to meet those requirements with timely responses and open communication.
